Special State Prosecutor’s Office (SDT) confirmed that 18 suspects of abuse of office and positions in business operations in the Bauxite, have been arrested today.

The prosecution suspects that the arrested, acting as authorized persons in two legal entities, as well as officials in relevant government bodies, since March 2006 have organized a criminal group in order to obtain illegal gain in Niksic, Podgorica and Cetinje.
“There is a reasonable doubt that the suspects used the economic structures of the two entities and exercised influence on officials in state bodies, by taking actions within their authorities in companies in order to obtain illegal profit. Also, the officials in state bodies undertook official actions within the scope of their tasks that were not in the interest of official duties they perform, but in the interest of carrying out the criminal plan, which significantly cost the community,” SDT stated.

According to the TVCG information, the interrogation of suspects is underway. According to unofficial information employees of the Ministry of Economy Ljiljana Maksimovic, Vladan Dubljevic and Radonja Minic are among them, as well as former director of Niksic branch the CKB Radoslav Nikcevic.
